Swift Plasma Cutting Extends to Ductwork Cutting

ESAB Group : 07 December, 2001  (New Product)
ESAB Automation's successful Swift plasma cutting machine can now be used for ductwork cutting and fabrication applications. This breakthrough is the result of the availability of new Camduct software designed specifically for heating and ventilation ductwork manufacturing. Ductwork can be internally lined or externally covered with insulating material and the Swift is still able to provide high quality cutting at high speed using the plasma cutting technique.
ESAB Automation's successful Swift plasma cutting machine can now be used for ductwork cutting and fabrication applications. This breakthrough is the result of the availability of new Camduct software designed specifically for heating and ventilation ductwork manufacturing.

Ductwork can be internally lined or externally covered with insulating material and the Swift is still able to provide high quality cutting at high speed using the plasma cutting technique.

Using the new Camduct software, the Swift system calculates both the area to be cut and the cost of the metal to be cut as well as size and cost of the insulation material and any facings to be added to the ductwork.

Camduct cutting shape libraries are embedded in the software and are the most extensive currently available. As new patterns are requested by ductwork manufacturers, these are added to the library and can be downloaded into any user's existing software at anytime.

The software program can also store information on any item entered and this information, such as dimensions, gauge and weight of material, can be exported to any other databases used in the manufacturing process.

Remote data entry allows information about orders from remote locations to be accepted. The file is simply e-mailed to the manufacturing site and automatically scheduled into the production process.

Extra cost savings are achievable with Camduct through the ability to program off line without interrupting the manufacturing process, therefore eliminating machine downtime. Furthermore, the nesting facility ensures maximum utilisation of sheet metal and insulation materials with minimal wastage.

The versatility of the Swift/Camduct combination is also demonstrated through facilities such as text marking with job numbers and other information as well as the ability to output bar codes for identification purposes used in despatch and for traceability.
